I am about ready to purchase the F48V4-NS Pixel Controller... but I want to make sure that I can ignore (not use at all) the 4 built-in local SmartReceiver ports... and have 12 'ethernet' cables plugged into this board... and have 12 Differential SmartReceiver boards (blue) at the remote end (near the pixel elements).

Also... what is the new (longer) distance for how far away the Differential SmartReceiver boards can be located? 

What does the the designation 'NS' mean?

THANKS for your response... much appreciated! :D

Those are not really Smart Receiver ports, they mirror ports 45-48 but yes you do not need to use them.

I don't know that there is a longer distance supported but I think it is around 300 feet.

It means No Switch so it cannot be used in the middle if you are going to daisy chain controllers.
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.
